Pork chops are an ideal dinner idea when you need something quick and easy, and when paired with apples, butter, and brown sugar, it becomes a meal the whole family will love. Tart apples, like Granny Smith or Macintosh, are best in this recipe. Granny Smith apples are especially nice because they have a nice firm and crisp texture and they don't turn brown as quickly as other varieties.
This recipe is delicious as is, but you can add more ingredients if you'd like. You could saute some onions and garlic in butter and add to the pork chops, or toss in some cubed potatoes. Add some dried herbs, such as marjoram or thyme.
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the pork chops in a baking dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Cover the dish and bake the chops for 30 minutes.
Toward the end of the cooking time, peel and chop the apples.
Remove the pork chops from the oven, uncover the dish, and place some of the chopped apples on top of each chop.
Dot with the butter and sprinkle with the brown sugar.
Return the pan to the oven and bake, uncovered, for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the pork chops are glazed and cooked to a temperature at least 145 F.
